The Evolving Bitcoin Landscape in Canada

No Comments

Canada Bitcoin

Canada has a thriving Bitcoin ecosystem with a wide range of Bitcoin sites and services having been established; The Bitcoin Catalog, The Canadian Virtual Exchange, The Montreal Bitcoin Embassy and 777Coin – to name just a few.

The Bitcoin Catalog is the world’s first print Bitcoin Catalog; featuring over 300 Bitcoin businesses and with the second edition due to come out this November. The first catalog was downloaded over 5000 times by Bitcoin enthusiasts worldwide.

The Canadian Virtual Exchange is the largest Bitcoin to Canadian Dollar exchange in Canada; having traded over $27.2 Million CAD and rapidly expanding with a huge demand for its services.

The Montreal Bitcoin Embassy is a non-profit organization seeking to promote the adoption of Bitcoin and related crypto-technologies, as well as facilitating networking with the Bitcoin community throughout Quebec and Canada. Its mission includes informing, educating and assisting individuals and merchants alike on the use of Bitcoin.

Bitcoin online gaming has evolved into a multi million dollar online industry. The iconic Bitcoin Dice Site SatoshiDice sold for $11.5 Million USD this past July. While services have been launched worldwide, the online Bitcoin gaming landscape in Canada has been relatively non-existent – until now.

777Coin launched earlier this year; one of the most original Bitcoin gaming platforms to be launched for months. All games are proprietary and have been developed in house by the owner David; a long time Bitcoin enthusiast who goes by the moniker lightlord on the bitcointalk forums.

Due to the original games on offer, provably fair technology and high paying affiliate program 777Coin has been steadily rising in popularity month after month since its launch.

Canada has a healthy and thriving Bitcoin ecosystem; featuring one of the most original Bitcoin gaming platforms in the world, the world’s first Bitcoin Embassy, The Bitcoin Catalog and The Canadian Virtual Exchange.

World’s First Bitcoin Endowment Fund Nears One Hundred Thousand Dollars – Lifeboat Foundation

No Comments

Lifeboat Foundation Logo

 

Thanks to a large pledge of 500 BTC (Bitcoin) by Brian Cartmell, Lifeboat Foundation’s Bitcoin endowment fund at https://lifeboat.com/ex/bitcoins has soared to nearly $100,000. Brian will match the next 500 BTC donated to Lifeboat Foundation.

While the Lifeboat Foundation was founded in the 21st century, until recently it was mainly funded using 20th century money, basically various types of monies backed by governments. Lifeboat is now working to have the majority of their funding come from 21st century money — money backed not by governments but by algorithms. The 21st century money Lifeboat is currently focused on is Bitcoin.

Crypto-currencies have many advantages over old-fashioned government-backed money. For example they enable transparency, enabling Lifeboat to show that their endowment monies are stored in these wallets:

http://blockchain.info/address/1Lifeboatu7Y9YqKQRcXfjWYJdXog9CS7r
http://blockchain.info/address/1LifeboatdUHD5eepYdcZZ57VjcwJU6CtB
http://blockchain.info/address/1Lifeboa1zJ7xJabHzVDmnsgqZ11m6LWL5
http://blockchain.info/address/1LifeDkGUgNJcneyRb5JUPTBF1pnT13C2U
http://blockchain.info/address/17aDRzRQK8ccBLVBzsms3ZasVKc9q3o3Qk
http://blockchain.info/address/1EYHFdzc3bnuzZAJxj2iCx4RdtdrVzkL92
http://blockchain.info/address/1MVn2E3hMf9cziRCsZzFnf1oLtSEeMVCSx

They also allow people in less developed countries to have access to the rest of the world. For example, PayPal alone blocks access to over 60 countries, and many credit card companies have similar restrictions. Some are blocked for political reasons, some because of higher fraud rates, and some for other financial reasons. Whatever the reason, they do not think a human being from Haiti, Ethiopia, or Kenya should have diminished access to the world because of payment issues they can’t control. Their goal is to enable people, not block them.

The Lifeboat Foundation would like to start a trend of non-profits building endowment funds with Bitcoin instead of just spending them all. non-profits could be using the deflationary power of Bitcoin to build up their resources so they are in a better position to make a difference in the world. They are looking for assistance in spreading this trend.

Lifeboat Foundation is now partners of Bitcoin Foundation and Bitcoin Magazine. Lifeboat Foundation Bitcoin-related board members include Jeff Bone, Paul Buitink, Vitalik Buterin, Mike Caldwell, Brenton Camac, Philippe Camacho, Brian Cartmell, Stephen DeMeulenaere, Matthew Elias, Mark Friedenbach, Chris Haley, Adam Harding, Zach Harvey, Kris Henriksen, Nejc Kodric, Aaron Lasher, Sean Lavine, Adam B. Levine, Colbert Low, Jon Matonis, Trace Mayer, Sam Mindlin, Lasse Birk Olesen, Salvatore W. Delle Palme, Michael Parsons, Elizabeth Ploshay, Alan Reiner, Benson Samuel, Charlie Shrem, Eli Sklar, Adam Stradling, Jorge Timon, Jonathan Waller, Alex Waters, and J.R. Willett.

Also, to give back to the Bitcoin community, Lifeboat Foundation has created the first Windows version of Oclvanitygen in the world that runs well on high-end AMD cards. Anyone can download it for free at http://lifeboat.com/oclvanitygen.exe and Bitcoiners can learn more about it on GitHub at https://github.com/samr7/vanitygen/issues/19. Oclvanitygen is used to create vanity Bitcoin addresses such as the Lifeboat Foundation’s Bitcoin address 1Lifeboatu7Y9YqKQRcXfjWYJdXog9CS7r which begins with 1Lifeboat.

About Lifeboat Foundation:

The Lifeboat Foundation is a non-profit non-governmental organization dedicated to encouraging scientific advancements while helping humanity survive existential risks and possible misuse of increasingly powerful technologies, including genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and robotics/AI, as we move towards the Singularity.

To ensure the Bitcoin businesses which are featured in The Bitcoin Catalog get as much exposure as possible, the Catalog is marketing to both new Bitcoin users and established Bitcoiners in a variety of ways.

Bitcoin Binary Options Trading

Victoria, Mahe, Seychelles, September 19 2013 – For the Bitcoin community 2013 has been a wild year of erratic fluctuations and massive growth. While the market capitalization of Bitcoin has grown tenfold and millions of dollars worth of new investments made, the Bitcoin merchant economy has only seen a fraction of that growth. This suggests that many are buying Bitcoin and trading them speculatively: enjoying the volatility and potentially high profits available by trading in the cryptocurrency. Capitalizing on this trend is recently launched BTCLevels; the first dedicated Bitcoin binary options trading platform, enabling anyone worldwide to open long or short positions and speculate and potentially profit on volatile Bitcoin price movements.

The BTCLevels trading page provides the user with up-to-date news and trading information; taking as much guess work out of opening a position as possible. Taking its listings and prices directly from MtGox in real time also means that the user gets an absolutely fair opportunity to make the smartest trade possible. The binary options expire every 3 minutes and are displayed on a rolling graph that can be set according to your preferred time periods – ranging from between 1 minute to a week. Designed to be as intuitive and easy to use as possible, opening positions on BTCLevels is done in two clicks and requires no registration. Although registration is available to those users who seek facilitated functionality and a better user experience.

BTCLevels.com is where “you can make money completely hassle-free by forecasting short-term Bitcoin exchange rate fluctuations” and given the abundance of traders worldwide who enjoy speculating on the volatility of Bitcoin price permutations, BTCLevels is sure to be a lucrative start-up and one to keep an eye on.

As the first Bitcoin-only binary options trading platform to be released, BTCLevels is poised to become a hit with the countless Bitcoin speculators looking to expand the professional trading instruments at their disposal.

Donate Bitcoin to Maddy's Run

About Maddy’s Run for CdLS and Ability Found:

Maddy’s Run is a 5K run/walk honoring the life of Madelyn Jackson and benefiting the Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Foundation and Ability Found. This year’s Maddy’s Run will be held at 8:00 am on Saturday, September 28, at Liberty Park, Salt Lake City. Participants can register and also donate to the cause using Bitcoin here.

About Maddy:

Madelyn “Maddy” Jackson passed away in August of 2010 at the age of 18. Maddy was a pure spirit and a bright light in the lives of so many she touched.From a very young age, despite her seeming fragility, Maddy had a fighting spirit and zest for experiences. Whether it was amusement park rides, a bumpy ski slope, swimming in Hawaii or loud funky music, Maddy loved life and showed it. She would smile so hard you could see it from the back, and would laugh and click when she was happy, which was often.She was especially happy sitting with her mom around the breakfast table on weekend mornings, or dancing with her dad late into the night. And she loved a party. Especially birthday parties—so much so that every family birthday party somehow turned into hers. And that was just fine.

About Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) and the CdLS Foundation:

CdLS is a genetic syndrome that occurs in about 1 in 10,000 births. Common medical problems include gastroesophageal reflux, bowel obstruction, hearing loss, and congenital heart defects. Although individuals with CdLS range from mildly to severely affected, most have similar physical characteristics: small size, hands and feet; thin eyebrows that meet in the middle; long eyelashes; upturned nose; and thin, downturned lips. Some individuals have limb differences, including missing fingers or arms, and partial joining of the toes. Founded in 1981, the CdLS Foundation is a family support organization that exists to ensure early and accurate diagnosis of CdLS, promote research into the causes and manifestations of the syndrome, and help people with a diagnosis of CdLS make informed decisions throughout their lifetime.

About Ability Found:

Ability Found’s mission is to provide medical and rehabilitation equipment free of charge to people with disabilities who cannot afford it. Founded in 1993, Ability Found, a small nonprofit based in Murray, UT, has donated millions of dollars of medical equipment and professional services to Utahans in need.

Introducing CoinGig – The Amazon For Bitcoin

No Comments

CoinGig Logo

In April 2013 Florida based Bitcoin ecommerce platform CoinGig was launched with the primary goal of becoming an international online Bitcoin superstore. With ever growing support from users and increasing traffic, CoinGig is becoming a popular alternative to purchase almost anything online with the digital currency Bitcoin.

As the Bitcoin equivalent of the online ecommerce giant Amazon.com CoinGig enables buyers and sellers across the globe to trade goods and services for Bitcoin. For the buyers peace of mind GoinGig has an integrated escrow system; the Bitcoin is not released to the seller until the buyer has received the goods. Comparable to eBay CoinGig provides a safe online shopping environment through its integrated feedback system; sellers receive a store badge for every successful transaction which is displayed on the product list alongside previous customer ratings.

The Bitcoin exchange rate on the CoinGig platform adjusts automatically to the latest BTC / USD market price every 10 seconds; ensuring both buyers and sellers get the fairest exchange rate possible for their trade.

Bitcoiners can purchase anything they might need – from business supplies to day-to-day essentials on CoinGig. Everything from arts, electronics, books, industrial merchandise, sports equipment and garden tools to pet food, clothes, jewellery, beauty products, games and more.

CoinGig is constantly working on implementing new features that will help make buying and selling products as effortless as possible. Realising that excellent customer support is the key to a successful business; CoinGig makes sure issues are resolved as soon as possible.

The idea that Bitcoiners would be hoarders is constantly proven wrong at CoinGig where people spend their Bitcoin daily when purchasing all types of merchandise.

The co-founders both agree that “The true purpose of bitcoin is to allow conducting business easier for all parties”. CoinGig was founded by two highly qualified individuals both with their background in engineering, one holding an MBA. They both share a mutual enthusiasm for, and years of experience in, the Bitcoin space; making them a solid team for this upcoming Bitcoin ecommerce platform.

Coinality – New Bitcoin Gig Site Cuts Out The Middleman

No Comments

COinality Logo

 

Bitcoin and other emerging digital currencies are creating new opportunities for professionals seeking to sell their services online. Disruptive digital currencies are attractive to professionals, and those who use their services, because they eliminate middle men through whom payments are made. Currently sites such as Elance and Odesk take a slice of the pie when they match skilled individuals and those who need their expertise.

But now, Daniel Roseman has launched coinality.com, an open marketplace where freelancers can sell their services for digital currency and – get this – he’s not going to take even the tiniest, wafer thin slice of anyone’s pie. “I’m not out to make a profit,” says the Irvine, California based entrepreneur. “All expenses are covered by donations from people who understand what we’re doing.”

So, what is Roseman doing? He’s eliminating barriers that impede the growth of digital currencies. “When Coinality’s competitors take a piece of the action they discourage people from switching to disruptive currencies. Conversely, we are encouraging people to use them by keeping our hands out of their wallets, whether the contracts are full-time jobs, or one-off gigs”

Coinality is the first such platform that encourages the use of all digital currencies, not just bitcoin. Roseman says, “It’s important to support the growth of all digital currencies. We encourage people to investigate what’s available and start switching over from fiat currencies to add to the liquidity and robustness of all of the coins”

The only ads you’ll see on Coinality are those placed by its users and it’s totally free to use. Roseman pledges, “Your registration information will never be sold to anyone.”

Roseman is looking for input from the hordes who are switching over to digital currencies. “I want to know what you want the site to be. I want to hear from developers, programmers, artists, MADmen, filmmakers, scientists, “says the Californian, adding, with a smile, “and I might even listen to a lawyer, or two, so long as they’re not billing me while they’re writing or speaking .

The captain of this enterprise is looking for feedback from anyone who backs his mission to make cyberspace a better place to work, “The wider the cross section of professionals we draw into disruptive digital currency the stronger disruptive digital currency will become and Coinality is ready to do its part.”

All aboard!
